Orange Fudge

Orange Fudge?  Sounds interesting… that may have been my first reaction.

My daughter, Hannah, is a very talented young lady.  She plays several instruments, she is an amazing artist using soft chalk pastels, paint, or water color markers as her mediums, she creates her own patterns and sews clothing for herself, and she is amazing in the kitchen.  She loves to bake and she has recently taken over almost all the meal planning, grocery list making, and cooking for our family.  She is incredible!  As the oldest of 6 children, and big sister to 5 younger brothers, she is an indispensable help around our home.

Hannah owns and operates a baking business called Sweet Hannah’s.  She makes sweet breads and cookies and everything she makes is delicious.  She has come up with some amazing recipes.

Hannah is very creative, and this Orange Fudge recipe is one of her creations.  I am so glad I tried it, and that she is allowing me to share it with you.

The method for putting this together is just a little different than the other fudge recipes I have shared- you will be making two layers.

 Orange Fudge
1 ½ C chocolate chips
1 ½ C white chocolate chips
2 TB butter, divided
14 oz. (1 can) sweetened condensed milk, divided
2 tsp orange extract, divided
2 drops yellow food coloring
1 drop red food coloring

Trace an 8”x8” pan on parchment paper.  Cut the parchment paper out.  Spray the pan, lay the parchment paper in the pan, spray the parchment paper.

Get out two sauce pans.  Melt 1 TB butter in each sauce pan.  Add the chocolate chips to one pan and the white chocolate chips to the other and melt over medium low heat, stirring constantly so the mixtures don’t burn.  Stir until the chocolate is completely melted and smooth.

Stir ½ of the sweetened condensed milk into each pan.  Stir in 1 tsp orange extract into each pan.  Set the chocolate chip mixture aside. Stir the food coloring into the white chocolate chip mixture until well combined.
